my name is Toni, im from Croatia and need your help. Im playing with idea, what if there were Expansion draft and i need your help.
If you were GM of Bulls, who would you protect and who would you expose?
Each team can protect up to 8 players from its active, injured and suspended lists as of the last day of the season; provided that each current team must leave at least one player unprotected.
Unrestricted free agents will not be eligible to be selected in the Expansion Draft. Restricted free agents are eligible to be selected.
If a restricted free agent is selected by the NBA expansion team in the expansion draft, that player will become an unrestricted free agent, eligible to be signed by any team (including the expansion team) other than his prior team.
And list od players for expansion draft are (UFAs are erased from list):
3 Omer Asik C 25 7-0 255 $1,857,500 (RFA)
5 Carlos Boozer PF 30 6-9 266 Duke $13,500,000
11 Ronnie Brewer SG 27 6-7 227 Arkansas $4,710,000
21 Jimmy Butler G 22 6-7 220 Marquette $1,020,960
9 Luol Deng SF 27 6-9 220 Duke $12,325,000
22 Taj Gibson F 27 6-9 225 USC $1,195,680
32 Richard Hamilton SG 34 6-7 193 Connecticut $5,000,000
26 Kyle Korver SF 31 6-7 212 Creighton $5,000,000
13 Joakim Noah C 27 6-11 232 Florida $12,000,000
1 Derrick Rose PG 23 6-3 190 Memphis $6,993,708
